Web Hosting: A web hosting is a company which provides services, support and all other necessary things which need to make a website like Web-Server, Platform, Web Space, RAM, Bandwidth, etc. In a single web hosting plan, you can run one or more domains per your purchased plan. Example if you purchased multi-domain hosting plan then you can host unlimited websites while your web space, RAM, bandwidth and other things keep an important role in it.
There are two type of web server one is managed and other is unmanaged. I recommend a managed web server for beginner because it is very easy to setup a website without any coding. In a managed hosting, company provides cPanel which help you to control your websites while in unmanaged server you must have knowledge of server and web programming. A hosting company charge some amount per year to host your website. I have written a complete article on How to Setup Web Hosting that will help you from Zero level to top through step-by-step guide.

How to Install WordPress
I believe You have already purchased a domain and web-hosting and pointed your domain to host`s IP address (if using two different registrars and Hosting company). Now, this is time to install WordPress on your server.
Login Your Host cPanel:
To install WordPress, you need to log in your hosting cPanel by typing example.com/cpanel, here example.com is your domain name. Now, put your cPanel user name and password that has been provided by hosting company in your email address at the time of purchase hosting.
After Successful Login in cPanel:
Hope, you are walking with my steps, then I believe you are inside your web host cPanel. I can understand you can see many icons inside the panel and these are new for you. Now, look from top to bottom you can see app installer, softaculous or WordPress in software or script language section. If you got the name WordPress then it is time to click on that to install it on your server.
If you would like to create a database before installing WordPress then it is good for you to create while it is not necessary to create separately because at the time of installing WordPress you will be asked to choose some option in advanced to create a database along with installation.
How to Create Database Separately:
A hosting company offer unlimited databases, then it is good to host unlimited domains with same hosting cost. I recommend to create a database before installation of WordPress. To create a new database look from top to bottom you will see database section. You can click on MYSQL databases or MYSQL databases wizard, to create you need to put name of database, username, password and remember it for future use.
How to Host Multiple Websites with Single Hosting?
If you have purchased a multi-domain hosting, then you can host as many websites as you want with the same web server. To host a new domain, first, you need to add that domain in Addon domain which is under domain section, look from top to bottom you can see domain Section. I recommend creating a separate FTP account for each Addon domain.
After hitting on addon domain you need to put your new domain like facebook.com and in subdomain and document root box, it automatically takes facebook and public_html/facebook.com respectively. Put user name and strong password for FTP account of that new domain name. After adding addon domain you can install WordPress with a new database in the same web hosting plan.
How to Fill the Details in WordPress Software Setup:
After Click on install option, you can see many boxes to fill out and some to select among existing. Below you can see what you should put inside the boxes, be careful during setup this.
